• 2012 Bai Mu Dan Aged White Tea

    This is a beautiful aged white tea cake with leaves from spring 2012, Zheng He, Fujian Province.  The taste has developed over the years from a light and bright Bai Mu Dan to smooth, fruity, dark tea with gorgeous notes of spice and dried fruit and a thick honey sweetness.  The pluck is two leaves and a bud, all harvested from one farmer's garden (not a blend of white teas bought at market).

    White tea overall is quite forgiving and easy to steep, and that is especially true of aged white teas.  They can re-infuse many times, and they seem to never get bitter.  We suggest trying them simmered stovetop style sometime as well as regular teapot style and gong fu style.

    Each cake is approximately 350 grams
